A good morning with Clinique

A good morning with Clinique

I’m going to be completely honest with you guys: I am not a morning person. I snooze my way through the alarm and then drag myself out of bed – straight to the coffee machine. I make breakfast while taking forever to pick an outfit for the rest of the day.  Shall I wear jeans or a dress, oh wait, what does the weather report say? Should I wear my hair up or down, eyeliner or not.. Then I take a long hot shower – I know, I know, a cold shower will probably help me wake up, but I just love my hot shower, okay?!

I definitely  enjoy some me time in the morning so I can wake up properly. As I already mentioned  in this post a good morning routine is essential to me. And obviously to the people around me…

Now surely I can’t be the only one that has a bit of a morning problem 😉 And even for those who don’t, I am sure my morning beauty routine will inspire you to get an even better start of your day!

After my hot shower I splash my face with some cold water and get started with using Clinique’s Pep Start.  I recently started using these products and I am a huge fan! Nothing like pampering yourself a bit before you get started.

 Now first I use the Exfoliating Cleanser to clean my face properly. This baby has a combination of cleansing and exfoliating ingredients, which will make your skin feel fresh and clean without that dry feeling some cleansers might give you.

Then I go on with some moisturizer: my skin can be a bit dry sometimes – especially after that hot shower – so I always grab my Hydroblur Moisturizer after cleansing my face. I have been hiding this a bit, but hey, since I am being completely honest in today’s post: I will be hitting the big three oh next year, so I am happy that this cream blurs out the fine lines and little wrinkles. In Clinique’s Pep Start range you can find another moisturizer: the Hydrorush SPF20, which I usually use on sunny days and city trips. This one protects your face from the sun and daily polution.

I finish my routine by using the Pep Start Eye Cream. After dabbing this around my eyes I finally, yes finally feel ready to get started with my day!
